Noah Smith smiled at her. “What’s wrong with the younger me?”
“You were just like a fool back then. You lost to me in all the games we played, or to be exact, you lost to me in everything, dumbo.” Catherine hissed with a disgusted face.
The smile on Noah’s face beamed wider. He simply started the engine of the car without saying anything, speeding down the road toward the hospital. “Mary Sullivan… I’d be damned if I’m going to let her get away with that.”
Catherine nodded in agreement. “We’re not going to let her off so easily!”
Noah remained silent and continued to accelerate down the street.
Meanwhile at Municipal Hospital, Mary was lying leisurely on the bed with a slice of pineapple in her hand, eating in a relaxed and idle mood. Bailey sat right beside her. She was busy peeling an apple.
Mary sneered as she swallowed a mouthful of pineapple. “Hahaha, Catherine Batton has probably been thrown into jail now. Serves her right! Know your place, girl, before you try to challenge me.”
Bailey casually threw a piece of the apple skin into the trash can and looked at her. “Next, I’m going to make sure that she enjoys herself to the fullest in jail.”
Mary bursted into laughter, leaving an evil chill in the air.
Buzz… Buzz… Buzz…
Suddenly, Bailey’s and Mary’s phones vibrated at the same time, pulling the two away from their merriment. The two of them dropped their heads instantly to take a look at the notification that was displayed on their screens. The bolded title of the article hit them in the eye as soon as they tapped on the notification.
“Mary Sullivan, daughter of Sullivan Food Group instructed men to hurt an innocent girl yet refused to admit her mistake. Unforgivably, she joined forces with the police to turn the tide and frame the victim!”
The ladies looked up in shock, mouth agape.
“What… What’s going on? How did that happen?” Mary shrieked, the phone in her palm was abnormally hot as if it was going to burn her hand the next second.
Bailey shook her head frantically, no words seemed to escape from her mouth.
“Didn’t Uncle Logan say he’ll settle everything? What happened?” Her scream echoed in the ward. Pure fear was all that was on her mind at that moment. She did not know what to do.
Before she could say anything else, the door was flung open followed by a few policemen dashing into her ward. Mary was aghast by their sudden appearance, her utter dismay reflected in her eyes. “What are you guys doing here?”
Without any warning, several policemen charged at Mary and put the handcuffs on her.
Mary stopped dead in her tracks. “Are you guys crazy?”
Bailey, too, was dumbstruck by the scene in front of her. “Sir, I… I’m afraid there might be a misunderstanding.”
“There’s no misunderstanding. Miss Sullivan’s case is reversed and she’s remanded so she must be sent to the police station now,” One of the policemen declared.
A feeling of dread crept up from the pits of Mary’s and Bailey’s guts. The two muttered in unison, “How is that possible?”
“It was the only son of the Vice President himself who came to the rescue.” A policeman explained with an indifferent tone in his voice.
Shortly after, Mary was forced to sit on the wheelchair and pushed out of the ward by the policemen. Horror and anxiety surged up within her as she was pushed along the aisle. She had a feeling that she was finished. What was more, she totally had no idea why Catherine Batton was so powerful.
Why would the only son of the vice president interfere with the case just to save her?
Could it be that there were some unrevealed secrets between the two of them?
Anyhow, there was no way she could escape with the vice president’s son stepping in. Trying to defeat him and set herself free was a lost cause.
Meanwhile, the article had gone viral on the internet and all the netizens were attacking Mary. In no time, the incident had occupied the top spot of the trending list on Twitter.
